    USPS? My guess is that using the bubble mailer will get you into the first class parcel category and cost starting at $3.50. Bummer if it does not weight that much since 6×9 is still not considered over sized.

    The bubble mailer purposely puffs things up but there might be wiggle room. Anything thicker than .75 inch goes at parcel rate.

    Don’t use the bubble mailer if unnecessary for significant savings. Buy regular 6×9 envelopes if you can get away with it. I can send things less thick than .75 inch for .71 cents. If the USPS does not think the envelope is bendable they stamp it non-machinable and charge like .91 cents.

    The parcel at $3.50 comes with free tracking if that matters.

    It depends on the weight of your item and possibly the thickness. USPS has a great phone app that will give you rates, ZIP codes, hold your mail and track items.

    Before you shop at Amazon Prime, read this.

    The dead giveaway that tells you when Amazon’s giving you a better price than other retailers.

    It’s NEVER the number of stamps needed…either FOREVER or denominated stamps…it’s how much does the mail piece weigh and what are the characteristics of the envelope…size, shape, machineable, etc…that determines the amount of postage required.

    In this case, the 6×9 envelope falls into the category of a letter sized envelope. Neither weight nor thickness of the contents was mentioned in the question. If said item weighs one ounce or less and is one quarter inch or less in thickness, one FOREVER stamp-currently rated at $.55 (01/30/2020)-will suffice.

    If item weighs more than one ounce, additional postage will be $.15 for each additional ounce or partial ounce up to a maximum of 3.5 ounces. Over that weight, an item is classified as “large envelope” and a different rate chart applies. Also, if item is over one quarter inch in thickness a non-machinable surcharge applies and is also an additional $ .15 in postage. I’ll let you do the math here.

    For more information, go to usps.com.

    I’d ask three questions:

    1. Is the thickness of the piece under .25″ thick?
    2. Is the address parallel to the 5″ side?
    3. Does it have a United States address?

    If the answer to all three is “yes,” it’s a machinable letter and costs one stamp ($.55) to mail.

    If the answer to 1 is “no,” it is a parcel and will cost at least $3.66 to mail.

    If the answer to 1 is “yes” but the answer to 2 is “no,” it is a nonmachinable letter and will cost .$70 to mail.

    If the answer to 1 and 2 is “yes,” but 3 is “no,” it will cost at least $1.15 to mail. I’d have to know which country it’s going to before I could give a better answer. The non machinability wouldn’t be an issue, but it might matter whether it is a letter or a parcel. Each country is different and has its own rules.

    Edited 5/21/2021 to update for changes in postage price.

    I agree with the 6X9 envelope. It is small enough to still qualify as a “letter”. If a bit larger, it would be a “flat” and would require more postage. I did not take the time to look it up, but the base postage for a flat might be an entire buck! Using the 6X9 thus saves you fifty cents! You can put the CD into a paper sleeve for a bit of extra protection. The cardboard stiffener is not necessary. The CD is already stiffer than the cardboard. Thus, the cardboard would NOT protect the CD from breakage. This suggested system WOULD keep the weight under one ounce. Current postage would be .75. That is 55 cents for the “forever” stamp plus .20 cents for the “extra ounce” stamp. The extra ounce “penalty” is required because the stiffness requires a bit of extra handling. If it actually WERE over an ounce, there would be a second .21 stamp needed.

    DON’T WASTE POSTAGE! If you mail CD’s, DVDs, or Blurays often, maintain a supply of extra ounce “forever” stamps, which cost .20 each. Don’t waste .30 by slapping another full ounce “forever” stamp on the mailpiece.

    DOLLAR TREE sells a half dozen 6X9 envelopes for a buck. You CANNOT beat that!

    Depending on how far it is going, it varies from current 2019 prices of $3.66 to $4.06 going as a first class parcel.

    Yes, but make sure the stamp has enough value. Per https://postcalc.usps.com, such an envelope would cost $1.45 to mail, if sent within the US as first-class mail. (so 3 first-class stamps would work)
